Crain's Detroit Business: How Michigan's Auto Insurance Premiums Became the Highest in the Country

Posted on October 24, 2017

In this Oct. 22 Crain's Detroit Business article, reporter Chad Livengood provides an in-depth analysis of the cost of auto insurance premiums and examines the wide variation of rates depending on a host of rating factors and discounts.

The story also takes a look at recent legislative efforts to reform auto no-fault. Livengood spoke with MHA Senior Vice President of Advocacy Chris Mitchell about the government-mandated fee schedule currently proposed in House Bill 5013, and past offers made by the MHA to voluntarily freeze its charges for a set period of years.

In responding to a question about why the MHA has steadfastly resisted a government-mandated fee schedule, Mictchell said, "For the providers, that's like us coming out with a proposal that says auto insurers can't use ZIP codes to set their rates. It's what I would consider a poison pill."
